Audi Q7: Front seats

General information

Make sure that:

  • You can press the pedals down completely while your legs are slightly bent
  • The distance between your upper body and the steering wheel or instrument panel is at least 10 inches (25 cm)
  • The distance between your knees and the instrument panel is at least 4 inches (10 cm)
  • Your thighs are lightly supported by the front surface of the seat
  • The backrest is in an upright position and your back is resting against it
  • You have a sufficient view of the area around the vehicle

Seat settings menu: quick access

Applies to: vehicles with seat settings in the MMI

If you press on the image of the driver's or front passenger's seat in the climate control system menu fig. 88 (1), you will go directly to the seat settings for that seat.

WARNING

  • If you are too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel, the airbag system cannot provide the optimal protection, which increases the risk of injury and death.
  • To reduce the risk of injury in the event of sudden braking maneuvers or accidents, never drive with the backrest reclined very far. The airbag system and safety belts can only provide optimal protection when the backrest is in an upright position and the driver is wearing the safety belt correctly. If the backrest is angled back too far, the safety belt can shift to soft areas of the body, such as the stomach, which increases the risk of injury.
  • To reduce the risk of an accident, only adjust the seats when the vehicle is stationary.
  • Be careful when adjusting the seat. Lack of control or attention when adjusting can result in injuries due to pinching to vehicle occupants both in the front seats and rear seats.
  • Never place objects in the driver's footwell.
    Objects could shift and enter the area around the pedals, which could prevent you from using them. You would then be unable to use the pedals if sudden driving or braking maneuvers were needed, which increases the risk of an accident.
  • Make sure that the floor mats are always securely attached.
  • To reduce the risk of an accident, never place additional floor mats or other floor covers over the installed floor mats, because this reduces the pedal's range of motion and can impair pedal operation.
  • To reduce the risk of injury, never place your feet on the instrument panel, out of the window, or on the seat surfaces. This also applies to passengers in the rear seats.

Note

To reduce the risk of damage, be very careful when adjusting the seat to make sure the head restraints do not come into contact with the headliner or the sunroof*.

Tips

At the same time, only move the respective seat using the controls.
